ACC Rant

(Feel free to ignore this.)

Okay I just-

I need to rant. I was watching Advent Children (Complete) again today and I just-

I love Tifa. I do. I really do. But dear god this is not okay.

I get it, I really do. Both of the kids are gone, kidnapped by what are basically miniature-Sephiroths, she’s scared and frustrated and feels helpless. Cloud has been constantly coming and going for two years now, and she’s looking for stability that isn’t there. She’s taking out her frustration and fear of the situation on the first person there who comes into conflict with her. But I just-

That scene. I hate that scene so much. Because while I understand where Tifa is coming from, she has absolutely no idea what she’s talking about.

I’m sure that everyone (minus Vincent and Nanaki, probably) expected for him to be okay after meteor. Tifa thought that he’d be there and be stable, be okay and around. After all, Sephiroth is gone, ShinRa is gone, the WRO is up and running and getting everyone electricity again. Cid is providing transportation, and Barrett is providing fuel. Everything’s okay now, right? Why should Cloud not be okay?

Matt Costello is Announced Mr. Basketball.

Matt Costello, the 6-foot-10 Senior at Bay City Western was awarded the title of Mr. Basketball for the state of Michigan in 2012.

Costello, who is committed to Michigan State, edged out Lansing Sexton’s Denzel Valentine for the honor. Valentine is also signed on with Tom Izzo’s Spartans for the 2012-13 season.

Averaging 25.1 points, 17.8 rebounds, 4.0 blocks per game, Costello owns the Bay City Western record for all-time points, rebounds, and blocked shots.

The best part about Costello though, is his striking facial resemblance to Ivan Drago in Rocky 4 (played by Dolph Lundgren). Tell me opponents won’t cower in fear at the mere sight of this guy.
